The easiest way to caculate pension by the second method is to locate after how many increments your last basic pay reached at the time of retirement. To calculate this you make a table starting from the initial basic pay + grade pay as the first point and then go on adding 3% every year for next stages, e.g.,
In the scale of 15600-30100 with GP 6600
First stage is 15600+6600=22200
next with 3% increment is 22866
next with 3% increment is 23552 and so on. This way you may find the number of increments your basic pay at the time of your retirement earned to arrive at that stage.
Now you go to the matrix of scales and find your new position after allowing the increments you have thus calculated. Now half that amount will be your basic pension. This method will surely prove beneficial to all old pensioners.
The total pension = basic pension + DA admissible

I aagree with Mr.Madan Mohan Joshi. This is the right and correct way to calculate number of increment earned at the time of retirement.
